5. Three or Four times a round on makeable putts, I second guess my read and make a bad stroke.  We have a few large greens on our course and many times I have been confronted with a long putt with multiple breaks and have not done a great job.  I believe Straka could help with both of these problems.

6. Absolutely.

5. How could a StrakaLine guide help your game? I still can't figure our greens out.  Heat map and break arrows would be a home run for making more putts.  Yardages from spots without sprinkler heads (rough fescue...) would take a lot of guesswork and time out of picking the right club.

5. How could a StrakaLine guide help your game?  Having just returning to the game after nearly 20 years you discover that what you lack in ability is offset by information and experience.  The insight and information that can be garnered by exact yardages and contour mapping would be invaluable. Imagine being able to shave even 1 stroke off of a hole because you knew the yardage or could visually see the undulations of the green.  Shot placement would be enhanced so you are at the yardage for a given approach shot.  As a former single digit handicapper I know that if I want to return to those lowly numbers, I need more information not less.

5. There's a lot of subtle breaks and large greens, would help when I have a double breaker and also on the better approaches where it looks and feels straight but does have some break to it that's hard to read.  Also on yardages to bunkers off the tee and water short of the green on longer 4's and 5's.  Strackaline would be perfect for helping to improve my game.

6. Absolutely.

will help me better place my approach shots to use the slopes and read putts better. There are some very tricky putts especially downhill that’ll roll off the green.

4. What is your home course? Las Sendas, AZ

5. How could a StrakaLine guide help your game? The more data points the better. I'd love a green books to help with read, but also to aim approach shots to work the ball closer to the flag or leave desirable putts uphill or on the right tier. I'd definitely benefit from planning out tee shot as well, especially on shorter par 4s where driver is probably not needed. 

6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Absolutely. Would get some great desert shots at Las Sendas. Beautiful course, that has a short but difficult setup with tough greens. Lots of blind shots, club selection is key. Would really put the StrackaLine to the test.

5. How could a StrakaLine guide help your game? I would love a yardage book with greens information to refer to when playing. The range finder and reading the greens by looks and feel can only do so much. The course has a lot of elevation change so having that information would almost feel like cheating.
